Bringing up that it “depends” is really bad for your side of the argument. And yes, it, for the most part, exists only on the internet, but minors also USE the internet, and that affects them in REALITY.
minors generally know that fiction =/= reality. they develop that at like… age 7 or 8. psychologists have confirmed that fiction only affects the very young or very mentally ill. no immature child (im talking 12 and under) should be on tumblr and if you are… buddy why?
furthermore those who are and are taking no steps to prevent exposing themselves to explicit content or blatantly ignore warnings (im talking turning off tumblr safe mode, entering adult only websites, clicking past warnings. obviously if you’re an adult you’ve gotta tag your shit. people cant block tags if you dont tag ur stuff.) and then bitch about adults invading minor spaces need to have a serious conversation with their parents about installing software on their computer that will stop them from seeing that content altogether as it is clear they do not have the control to do it themselves.
im not forcing you to see that content. you’re the ones not blacklisting tags and searching it up.
